Like I posted earlier I need more specifics to investigate this.  Having clients
build in safeguards is ridiculous!  This would be a server bug by far if no
bounce is happening and it is actually getting lost somehow.  It has high 
priority in my books, but I need info, debug logs, incoming/outgoing XML for 
both parties involved, and anything else that will help.
